What are "Grades"??    16:13 on Sunday, September 09, 2007 Vote for this post Vote against this post 0 votes

I've heard people talk about them here in the forums, but I never knew what they were. Could someone explain it to me??

I think in the thread titled "What grade is Fur Elise by Bach?", someone posted it as a "4"... What does that mean??

Thanks!!

I'm grade seven and I'd say Fur elise is between grades 3 and 6. I'd also reackon that grade seven is advanced because you have to learn diminished sevenths and double octaves and so far I haven't met anyone who knows what they are. Therefore I'm going to fail my exams being not able to play them so if anyone knows anything about them please let me know. I believe they're both some kind of scale.

In music, a double octave is an interval composed of two octaves, or fifteen notes, in diatonic progression.
